~$8.8M capital works project

A new reservoir, pipework and upgrades to intakes were completed in 2022.

The 9.6m-high, 3.9 megalitre reservoir at Ravenshoe is complete and has passed testing. The hardware and software to control the reservoir levels and water treatment is being installed and the reservoir will be commissioned once everything is functional.

The geotechnical surveys of the 23km pipeline route that will connect Belleview Estate, Cassowary Heights and Millstream to the Ravenshoe scheme are complete, and construction will commence in the coming months.

$2.4M has been allocated in the 2022–23 budget for the design and commencement of the water treatment plant, and construction of the 23km of pipelines and a booster pump to connect Belleview Estate, Cassowary Heights and Millstream. Further funding will be allocated in the 2023–24 financial year. If everything goes to plan, the project should be completed in 2024.

Proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland and Local Government Grants and Subsidies Programs in association with Tablelands Regional Council.
